How we move you

Our vehicle fleets are built to suit your needs and provide top performance while maintaining a safe and reliable experience.

Comfort and Safety

May shuttles are designed for your streets, both public and private, and provide comfortable individual seats and belts for every rider.


On-demand or circulating routes.
Hail a ride from your phone.
Wifi optionally available in-shuttle.


May shuttles don’t just see other road users, they understand what they are trying to do.


May shuttles interact with other road users like a human driver, giving extra space to vulnerable users, passing other cars, guarding against surprises like jaywalkers.

Smart Choice

Proven GEM platform.
Environmentally-friendly electric vehicle.

Over 25 years of combined robotics and automotive industry experience

                May values aggressive collaboration, sweating the details, and showing (not saying) what we can do. May employees work hard and efficiently to make time for both their work and non-work passions, while the company nurtures both.

                Our engineers are system builders who not only dig deep into their strongest areas but also think and constantly learn about how all the puzzles pieces fit together.

                Our customer development and operations team knows that our ability to execute technically is only the first step; incredible service and execution are core to May’s success and ability to turn the entire transportation industry on its head.

                We love working here, would you?
